This year’s event is dedicated to the memory of Dennis Berberich Sr. A long-time member of the Calvary Hospital Board and the Chairman of the Calvary Fund Board, Dennis’ family created the Dennis Berberich Scholarship Fund, which allows one Calvary Care Technician (CCT) to further their career in nursing. The 2019 honoree is Apriena Irving. She started her career in 2015 with Calvary at our Brooklyn Campus. Her goal is to use the scholarship to attend nursing school.
